Something's Fishy

This painting came about as I was waiting to become a mother. I think the painting demonstrates more about the situation now than it did when I was working on it. I turned into a fish, always swimming and unable to hold my life in place and realize what is really going on. Everything s become slippery

If you want to view it in real life, it's at Terzian Gallery in Park City, Utah.

I love the color in this piece. As an expectant mother, I can feel my life floating away and being a little fish wanting to grasp onto something solid. However, for me the vibrant colors give a hope. And maybe give me some ideas to paint the nursey.

About Me

Brooklyn, NY
I am a artist living in Brooklyn and currently an artist-in-residence with Chashama at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. I have been working in encaustic for the past few years, but am usually trying out a couple of different art making media at once. Peter Everett once called my work kitch, but I don't think it bothers me.
